PPSSPP Log can take 1 GB of disk space if you let it, how do I disable this? - Niyawa - 06-24-2013 05:54 PM

You know the problem. I can delete it alright, but it keeps appearing and every time it has a bigger size. I've lurked through all the options in PPSSPP but nothing mentioning logs or anything that could have freed me from this curse. I have a specific 24 GB partition for Windows whereas I've left a few GBs only for cache and my programs, so those 1-2 GB from the log makes a HUGE difference in daily use.

If there's no way to disable it, please tell me so I can make a request in the features thread.

Delete the logs folder inside the user folder altogether. Then, if/when you want logs back, just recreate the folder. Or run ppsspp with --log=mylogfile.txt, or whatever you want it to be named.

Thanks, I've tested it here just for safety and it works great. Just hope the user folder will not be useful for anything else.

No problem. As far as I know, it's currently only used to house the logs folder.

It's not useful for anything else. I personally use --log= instead because it maintains more control.
